More and more children are ending up in emergency rooms after accidentally taking medications designed for adults.
"We are seeing an increase not just in our E.R., but region-wide," says Dr. Erik
Schobitz, who works in the pediatric emergency room at Shady Grove Adventist
It's part of a national trend. Safe Kids Worldwide, an advocacy group for child
safety, reported earlier in 2012 that roughly 165 children in the U.S. are rushed
to emergency rooms each day after finding and taking medications.
